West Albany High School 1st 302

West Albany posted a season-best 302 team score at Mallard Creek on Monday on its way to its fourth consecutive league win.
The Bulldogs were paced by junior Brock Nelson’s two-under-par 70.
“Brock played a great round today,” coach Matt Boase said. “He knows this course well and has endless talent, so it wasn’t surprising to have him post a great score.”
Nelson was one of five Bulldogs to shoot in the 70s for the day. Senior Grant Moen posted 76, sophomore Nick Anderson 77, and seniors Trenton Crow and Andrew Liles each had 79s.
“To have all five guys in the 70s is fantastic, and Nick shooting 77 was particularly great to see,” Boase said. “He is such a skilled player that he can continue to go lower, but that was a solid round on a course that has a lot of places that can add strokes to a scorecard.”
Corvallis’s Cole Rueck was medalist with a seven-under 65.
West Albany will be back in action next Monday at Cross Creek Golf Course.
